In early modern England, just as in late medieval and Renaissance Italy, tyranny was seen as theoretically inimical to justice and liberty, yet in practice something to be lived with and accepted. In this lecture, Professor Conal Condren will explore the uses of tyranny, and liberty in seventeenth-century England, and provide insight and clarity to these concepts that were rather different from those familiar now.

All welcome to attend, bookings essential. Please RSVP online.
